DILIMAN, Quezon City — The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) takes another opportunity to underscore the agriculture and fisheries in the Philippines. This time, to some Bangladeshi government officials headed by the Secretary of the Ministry of Food (MAF) during a briefing-orientation in the Learning and Discovery (LeAD) Center and Agriculture and Fisheries Knowledge Resource Center on May 31, 2017.
DILIMAN, Quezon City—“If we really wanted to make a significant mark in poverty reduction, helping them is the best way to start.” These were the words of Senator Cynthia Villar, Chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food during the project launch of “Improving Productivity in Agriculture through Climate-Smart Technology” or ImPACT Philippines. Villar stressed the need to support our farmers and fishers since about two-thirds of the country’s population is involved in the agriculture sector, directly or indirectly.
